Josh, It's kinda wierd when we are BOTH right. I just double checked on LILO. The newer versions do support LBA, but only if you have EDD extensions to INT13, a.k.a BIOS. Granted, most boards will by now - but then not all BIOS are created equal either. Anyway, you were right in that that limit has been lifted, but only if your BIOS is friendly. And I was right, that LILO doesn't always work. Cool. Interesting tech tidbit for everyone who plays with boot loaders. Laters, T.J.
